Stoughton senior Izon Swain-Price has been selected as the Player of the Week for October 9th through October 15th; the sixth player chosen for the 2016-2017 season. Swain-Price continued his stellar senior season, scoring three touchdowns in Stoughton’s big win over Foxboro on Friday night.

After Stoughton’s defense got the ball via an interception, Swain-Price got the Black Knights’ offense off to a good start, punching in a 10 yard touchdown with less than five minutes elapsed in the first quarter. AFter Foxboro cut the lead in half, Swain-Price got his second touchdown of the game, scoring from two yards out to put the Black Knights up 14-3 at halftime.

“[Ryan] Sullivan and Izon, those guys are tough,” Stoughton head coach Greg Burke relayed earlier this season following a win over Sharon. “They can get going.”

After the Black Knights forced a fumble early in the third quarter, Swain-Price grabbed his third rushing touchdown of the game on a 25 yard run, putting Stoughton up 29-3. Swain-Price now has seven rushing touchdowns on the season and four receiving touchdowns.

The Player of the Week is selected by the staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There will be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
